In my e-mail today is a note from a colleague, forwarded from a customer.  The customer indicates that Microsoft has called her/him several times in the last few weeks wondering what their plans are now that IBM has (customer's words): "announced they are terminating the product".

Anyone else getting these calls, or, better yet, e-mails?  I'm not trying to stir the pot, but if these kinds of audacious claims are being made, I want to know about it.

I don't want to see a rash of anonymous postings here.  Assuming that many of you would be uncomfortable posting in public on this topic, let's just say that if you've gotten a call or e-mail like this, e-mail me at fud@edbrill.com .  I'll anonymize and summarize comments, only with your permission.

Can things be any crazier?  Notes/Domino 7 are shipping in weeks.  "Hannover" has been announced.  What part of that is "terminating"?  Maybe the MS FUDmeisters are confusing Notes with OS/2.
